About Me

If the URL failed to give it away: this blog is run by me, Karl Moritz Hermann.

Until the beginning of 2020 I was a (senior staff) research scientist at DeepMind, who in 2014 acquired our startup Dark Blue Labs of which I was CEO.

Before industry I was a postdoctoral researcher in Computational Linguistics and Machine Learning in Oxford, where I also gained my D.Phil (Oxford-speak for Ph.D.).

From parallel and sometimes overlapping lives I have an MA (oxon.) in Computer Science and an MSc (SOAS) in International Politics. Before all the machine learning happened I also spent some time with the European Commission and several years with McKinsey & Company.
